Which brand is best for lipstick?

The best brand for lipstick's has of course got to be the brand that has chosen to establish itself as the ultimate colour authority since 1984, MAC! At MAC we offer over 200 different shades of lipstick and that's just in bullet form alone!

If you're looking for that perfect matte red colour for a special occassion why not try my favourtie MAC Viva Glam I which is the perfect brownish blue-red and will suit just about anybody. As well as getting a perfect red lipstick you'll be helping vulnerable communities, including those affected by COVID-19, as 100% of the RRP (less VAT) goes to organisations that help these communities. Apply 2 coats of Viva Glam I for maximum colour payoff and pair with MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry for just the right amount of bright red colour.

If you're the type of person who loves a long-wearing, hydrating and glossier finish with your listick, then you must absolutely try our Love Me Lipstick formula! These lipsticks are infused with argan oil and deliver an instant hit of powerful colour along with ensuring all-day moisture. As one of our newer formula's they have a "True-Colour Gelled System" of ultra-refined pure pigments that evenly disperses bright, smooth colour for high-impact one-swipe payoff. A combination of lightweight oils and specialized waxes makes this lipstick feel luxurious, super-silky and barely there. For the perfect peachy nude try Tres Blase on top of our Prep + Prime Lip for that added long wear, by acting like velcro for your lipstick Prep + Prime Lip will help to prevent any feathing ensuring you look fabulous all day!

PRO TIP:
I use my favourite MAC lipsticks as a blush! The same shade that looks amazing on your lips can bring a gorgeous flush of colour to your cheek too if you apply it properly. To do this rub some colour straight from your bullet onto your fingers and then pat it onto your cheekbones. For an even creamier finish blend in with MAC Strobe Cream Pinklite for a gorgeous creamy flush of colour!
